What do you fill MDF joints with?

I use Ronseal high performance wood filler. Easy to sand and sands smooth. You'll have to sand between coats of primer because first coat will raise the grain of mdf leaving filled areas non-raised.

How do I join the MDF pieces?

Woodworkers use spline joints to join two pieces of like material together. The spline joint is a piece of wood centered between two pieces of MDF to connect them. When glue and clamps are employed, an MDF joint is nearly invisible and almost indestructible, as long as the MDF is thick enough.

What primer should I use on MDF?

Prime the MDF with a solvent-based primer, such as Zinsser (buy online) or KILZ (buy online). Avoid water-based primer, as it may cause the wood fibers to swell, resulting in a surface that appears to have a raised grain (no matter how much effort you put into sanding).

Can you dowel MDF?

Glued dowels bond with the MDF fibers to strengthen joints. And unlike screws, dowels can hide below the surface. Of course, there's no margin for error when positioning dowel holes in mating parts. Oversize dowel holes can weaken MDF, so use 14 " dowels for 12 "-thick stock, and 38 " dowels for 34 " stock.
